‘American Gods’: Kirsten Chenoweth Will Not Return for Season 2

Kristen Chenoweth has confirmed she will not return for the second season of “American Gods.”

The actress, who played Easter in the first season of Starz’s Neil Gaiman adaptation, revealed in an interview with TVLine on Monday that she would be departing the series out of solidarity with original showrunner Bryan Fuller.

“I couldn’t come back without him,” said Chenoweth, who previously collaborated with Fuller on the ABC drama “Pushing Daisies.” “It wouldn’t be right.”

This is just the latest bit of behind-the-scenes upheaval on the second season of the fantasy drama ahead of its return next year.

Last month, it was reported that “American Gods” showrunner Jesse Alexander was sidelined from actively working on the series just months after taking over for original showrunners Fuller and Michael Green exited the series in February.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alexander had “been asked not to sit in on editing, be involved on set or participate in any other areas of production or postproduction.” He will retain an executive producer credit on the second season.

Along with the showrunner shakeup, “American Gods” has seen casting changes going into its sophomore year, with Gillian Anderson replaced by Kahyun Kim, and the additions of Dean Winters and Devery Jacobs.

“American Gods” showrunner Jesse Alexander, who took over the Starz drama in February after original showrunners Michael Green and Bryan Fuller exited the series, is no longer working on the show, which is currently in production on Season 2.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news, citing sources that say Alexander was asked to stop working on “American Gods” about a month ago and is no longer a writer or showrunner on the TV adaptation of the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name. THR reports he still holds the title of executive producer.

According THR, Alexander “has been asked not to sit in on editing, be involved on set or participate in any other areas of production or postproduction.”

Alexander turned in multiple drafts for the Season 2 finale, but they were all rejected by execs at Starz and Fremantle and production is delayed while actors await a script for the final episode of the season, according to THR.

Season 2, which will be eight episodes, is currently expected to debut sometime in 2019.

Representatives for Alexander, Gaiman and lead actor Ian McShane did not respond to multiple requests for comment by TheWrap.

Starz declined TheWrap’s request to comment directly on Alexander’s showrunner status with the series, saying in a statement first given to THR, “‘American Gods’ has a deep and complex mythology and a unique visual style that makes this series one of the most ambitious productions on television, and one that we remain committed to delivering for our audience. We are confident that when the fans get their first look at season two in just a few weeks at New York Comic-Con, they will agree it was worth the wait.”

Studio Fremantle, also declining to comment on Alexander, added in their own statement: “We stand by our network partner’s statement and share in their confidence that season two will exceed expectations. Our cast and crew are extremely passionate about the show and have delivered something that remains loyal to the source material and true to the creative vision of Neil Gaiman. We think fans will feel the same when we share a first look at New York Comic-Con in a few weeks.”

Creators and ex-showrunners Fuller and Green departed “American Gods” after the first season, with Alexander taking their place. Gaiman also serves as executive producer.

Starz still hasn’t given a straight answer about why the duo left the series, with network chief Chris Albrecht saying at the Television Critics Association press tour in January, “They were not fired nor did they quit.”

Along with the showrunner shakeup, “American Gods” has seen casting changes going into its sophomore year, with Gillian Anderson (who played Media) replaced by Kahyun Kim (who will play New Media), and the additions of Dean Winters as Mr. Town, who works with Mr. World (Crispin Glover) to find out what Shadow (Ricky Whittle) knows about Mr. Wednesday’s (Ian McShane) plan and Devery Jacobs as Sam Black Crow, a college student who is spiritually cynical for someone who claims to believe in so much. She lives life confidently, selling the chainsaw art she carves by the roadside for extra money.

It’s unclear if Kristin Chenowith will return as Easter, though Starz CEO Chris Albrecht sounded optimistic in January.

14 Stephen King TV Adaptations Ranked, Including ‘Castle Rock’ (Photos)

Stephen King has been seeing a resurgence as of late. Many of the iconic horror author’s works are getting new TV adaptations. 2016 saw “11.22.63” on Hulu and 2017 saw “The Mist” on Spike and we’re still due for &#82…

Stephen King has been seeing a resurgence as of late. Many of the iconic horror author’s works are getting new TV adaptations. 2016 saw “11.22.63” on Hulu and 2017 saw “The Mist” on Spike and we’re still due for “Castle Rock,” an original story that takes place within the King multiverse. In honor of all these adaptations, we looked back at all the King works (original screenplays not included) that have made their way to television, sometimes with horrifying results.

“It” (1990)

That’s right, arguably one of the most iconic of Stephen King adaptations was actually on TV. An edited version of “It” became the movie most people remember it as, but the original four-hour two-parter is well worth checking out.

“Haven” (2010-2015)
Syfy’s sci-fi drama didn’t have much to do with the King novella “The Colorado Kid” beyond introducing a character by the same name, but fans fell for the tale of Audrey Parker and her attempts to help the unwittingly superpowered residents of Haven, Maine anyway. The show ran for five seasons and Haven became a reference and setting in future King stories.

“11.22.63” (2016)
JJ Abrams and Hulu mounted a mostly straightforward adapation of King’s alternate history time-travel tale involving the assassination of JFK. Given those parameters, they probably could have stood to take a few more risks.

“Dead Zone” (2002-2007)
The episodic crime procedural starring Anthony Michael Hall ran for six seasons on USA. It’s nothing special, but it’s digestible and manages to stretch its thin premise of a psychic solving crimes into a quest to avert the apocalypse, so that must count for something.

“The Shining” (1997)
ABC’s miniseries adaptation of King’s novel should be considered brave at the very least, comparisons to Stanly Kubrick’s iconic movie all but inevitable. If you ask King though, he would tell you the miniseries is much more faithful to his original vision.

“Under the Dome” (2013-2015)
CBS’ adaptation of King’s novel about a town that suddenly finds itself under a giant glass dome started off well enough, but as the seasons went on, the show got weirder, seemingly without direction and you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who cared about why Chester’s Mill ended up under a dome or if its residents would ever escape, by the end.

“The Stand” (1994)
It’s not easy to adapt one of King’s most beloved and sprawling novels that tackles the very essence of good vs. evil, but ABC mostly succeeded in their four-night event.

“The Mist” (2017 – ?)

At the time of this writing, the show has only just premiered on Spike TV. While it only borrows themes and premise from the King novella, it does work to create the same foggy and unknown atmosphere (pun intended). If only the writing was a little better and the violence worked on more levels beyond providing shock.

“The Tommyknockers” (1993)

It’s not all that creepy, but it’s almost a perfect culmination of King tropes: from secret aliens, to psychic powers, to small town life gone awry. That all kind of leads to a basic script, which is elevated by performances from a great cast featuring Jimmy Smits and Robert Carradine.

“Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King” (2006)

The eight-part miniseries adapted short stories from some of King’s collections. It features some incredible actors and performances from William Hurt and William H. Macy and is a solid adaptation of the ones in question. However, none of the stories are standouts to begin with, even if most of them are above average in quality, so the miniseries suffered the same fate.

“Bag of Bones” (2011)
A&E tried to bring back the grand old tradition of Stephen King miniseries adaptations in 2011 with a new take on “Bag of Bones,” but the Pierce Brosnan-led two-parter just ended up being mostly forgettable.

“Carrie” (2002)

You’d think with a screenplay by Bryan Fuller (!), this TV movie, which was intended as a backdoor pilot for a “Carrie” series, would’ve been worthwhile. Unfortunately, it lacked what made the film version of King’s book such a classic, going for low-key, quiet performances instead of the insane, over-the-top setup of the original.

“The Langoliers” (1995)

It’s mostly known nowadays for its disappointing and hilarious visual effects, and is also mostly boring, but the story of people who realize they are the only ones left on a plane is almost worth watching for that end reveal.

‘American Gods’ Season 2 Update: First Episodes Are In, and Starz Boss Says It Still Has ‘Bryan Fuller’s DNA’

TCA: As the battle between Old Gods and New Gods “continues to brew,” Starz’s programming president promises a “mind-blowing” new season.

Production is still underway on Season 2 of “American Gods,” and Starz programming president Carmi Zlotnik said the network has already received the first few episodes.

“They look fantastic,” Zlotnik said. “It’s very safe to say we will follow the tradition of Season 1 and produce some mindblowing television.”

Jesse Alexander, whose credits include “Star Trek: Discovery,” “Hannibal,” and “Heroes,” has been serving as showrunner, working closely with “American Gods” author and executive producer Neil Gaiman.

“Neil is very involved, he’s intrinsically involved,” Zlotnik said. “Jesse Alexander probably talks to him every day, and we talk to him frequently. He has other responsibilities and another show he’s doing, but Neil Gaiman is the heart and soul of ‘American Gods,’ so I can’t imagine there’s a version where he’s not involved.”

Original showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green will continue to have executive producer credit, having adapted the novel for television, but are no longer involved. “I’d like to think they’re still a part of the family and we love them and they gave us a great first start,” Zlotnik said.

The duo left the show last year following creative and financial differences with series producer FremantleMedia North America. But in Alexander, they found a new showrunner who has worked under Fuller on numerous productions, giving the production some continuity.

“Jesse has worked with Bryan, and I feel like we’re still in the Bryan Fuller school because Jesse was trained by Bryan and probably holds a lot of his DNA,” Zlotnik said.

As for new faces this season, the character of “Media” has been rebooted as “New Media,” with Kahyun Kim (“Shameless”) stepping in for the role, originally played by Gillian Anderson.

“Gillian could not continue, she was never contracted to continue, so we cast a new actress playing New Media,” Zlotnik said. “But because of the magical world of ‘American Gods,’ it leaves the possibility open to bring in new actors to play continuing roles because the Gods come to human beings in different forms.”

As previously reported, other new faces include Dean Winters as Mr. Town and Devery Jacobs as Sam Black Crow.

Here’s the logline for Season 2 of “American Gods”: “The battle between Old Gods and New Gods continues to brew as we join Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) just a few short hours after his declaration of war and the epic showdown that ensued at Easter’s party. While Mr. World plans revenge for Wednesday’s attack and Technical Boy searches for Media, Mr. Wednesday continues his quest to pitch the case for war to the Old Gods with Shadow (Ricky Whittle). Laura and Mad Sweeney in tow, Shadow begins to understand this strange world of the gods and carve out a place in it as a believer, but it is far from a straight path. Change requires sacrifice, and when things don’t go as planned at the House on the Rock, both Old and New Gods, and those they meet along the way, find themselves on journeys across America — all destined for a climactic showdown in Cairo, Illinois.”

Season 2 of “American Gods” will premiere some time in 2019, but Zlotnik wasn’t ready to even confirm a time of the year it will return.

Having exited his fair share of shows over the years, Bryan Fuller today has a suggestion for ABC to replace the now-canceled Roseanne on its fall schedule.

Bryan Fuller Blasts ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Trailer for Ignoring Freddie Mercury’s Sexuality, AIDS

Writer and producer Bryan Fuller is accusing 20th Century Fox of “hetero-washing” the story of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in a new trailer and marketing materials for the biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

“Anyone else mildly annoyed … that the #BohemianRhapsody trailer features gay/bi superstar Freddie Mercury flirting with and twirling with a woman but no indication of his love of men?” Fuller tweeted on Tuesday after the clip hit the web.

The footage shows actress Lucy Boynton staring longingly at star Rami Malek as Mercury, also leaping into his arms. Boynton plays Mary Austin, who some credit as Mercury’s muse but is not well known in pop culture. The trailer also features a young man coming on to Malek’s Mercury in a recording studio, but it’s blink-and-miss.

Fuller directly addressed the studio in a separate tweet, incredulous over their choice of words to describe Mercury’s battle with AIDS. The singer died of an AIDS-related illness in 1991.

“Dear 20th Century Fox .. Yes, it was a life-threatening illness, but more specifically it was AIDS. From having gay sex with men. Do better,” he wrote, with a screenshot of the film’s official synopsis.

That description said Mercury faced “a life-threatening illness.” Representatives for 20th Century Fox  Film did not immediately have a comment.

With his tweet, Fuller added the hashtag #HetWashing, which presumably translated to “heterosexual washing.” It’s a term reserved for content that has been changed from its source material to be more palatable for wide audiences, and is often seen in a racial context when characters of color are replaced by white actors.

“Rhapsody” has had a tumultuous road to the screen, in and out of development with different stars attached for years. The production was also hit with scandal when the studio made the rare move of firing director Bryan Singer more than halfway through shooting. He was replaced by Dexter Fletcher.

Fuller is the creator of the NBC cult hit “Hannibal,” and brought the STARZ hit “American Gods” to screen. He was also the showrunner on “Star Trek: Discovery,” before stepping down last November.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” is set to hit theaters on November 2.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’: Bryan Fuller Slams Fox For Ignoring Freddie Mercury’s Sexuality and AIDS Diagnosis in Trailer and Synopsis

The “Hannibal” and “Pushing Daisies” creator is calling out 20th Century Fox for “heterosexual-washing” the upcoming Freddie Mercury movie, starring Rami Malek.

20th Century Fox debuted the first trailer for its Freddie Mercury drama “Bohemian Rhapsody” to much hype from movie lovers and Queen fans (the YouTube video has over 1 million views in less than seven hours). The rock drama stars Rami Malek as the legendary Queen frontman, but not everyone is happy about how the movie studio is marketing the film. Bryan Fuller, best known for creating television series like “Hannibal,” “Pushing Daises,” and “American Gods,” is accusing Fox of “heterosexual-washing” Mercury’s story in the “Bohemian Rhapsody” trailer and synopsis.

“Anyone else mildly annoyed that the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ trailer features gay/bi superstar Freddie Mercury flirting with and twirling with a woman but no indication of his love of men?” Fuller asked his 152,000 Twitter followers.

One Twitter user noticed that a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shot in the trailer features Mercury alone with a man in a recording studio, but Fuller said the trailer blatantly prioritizes one sexuality (heterosexuality) over the other (homosexuality). Several Twitter users criticized Fuller for labeling Mercury as gay when the musician identified as bisexual, but again Fuller said that the trailer wasn’t prioritizing the singer’s bisexuality and leaning more into his relationship with women.

Fuller also took issue with Fox’s official synopsis for the movie. The text describes the plot as tracing “the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music.” Fuller slammed Fox for leaving out the singer’s AIDS diagnosis from the synopsis.

“Dear 20th Century Fox: Yes, it was a life-threatening illness, but more specifically it was AIDS,” Fuller wrote. “From having gay sex with men. Do better.”

“Bohemian Rhapsody” opens in theaters November 2. IndieWire has reached out to Fox for comment.

‘Amazing Stories’ Executive Producer Hart Hanson Out After Bryan Fuller Exits Apple TV Reboot

Following the departure of showrunner Bryan Fuller, Hart Hanson has quit as executive producer of Apple’s “Amazing Stories,” an individual with knowledge tells TheWrap.

Like Fuller, Hanson exited the project because of creative differences, though the split is said to be amicable. Hanson’s departure was expected, as the “Bones” creator had been brought in to partner with Fuller on the show.

Bryan Fuller Exits Apple, Steven Spielberg’s ‘Amazing Stories’ Reboot

Bryan Fuller is out as showrunner for Apple’s “Amazing Stories” before its tale had even truly begun, a source close to production tells TheWrap.

Fuller, who was set to take point on the upcoming anthology — one of Apple’s first scripted series — exited the project because of creative differences, though the split is said to be an amicable one. It is not clear if he will have a different role on the project.

Fuller has been attached to the reboot of Steven Spielberg’s ’80s sci-fi series since October 2015, before the project shifted from NBC (the broadcaster behind the original series) to a 10-episode straight-to-series order at Apple last year as part of a deal between Spielberg’s Amblin Television, Apple and Universal TV.

Fuller was to serve as executive producer alongside Amblin’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey. He was also set to pen the script, though he had not delivered one to Apple before his exit.

The original “Amazing Stories,” which was created and produced by Spielberg, ran from 1985-1987 on NBC. It failed to catch on with audiences, but did land five Emmys — including a directing win for Spielberg for “The Mission,” which starred a young Kevin Costner as a World War II gunner pilot.

The news of Fuller’s exit comes after his ouster from Starz’ “American Gods,” which he and co-showrunner Michael Green were fired from following budget disputes with producer Fremantle. Fuller also exited CBS All Access’ new series Star Trek: Discovery,” while it was still in pre-production.

The news of Fuller’s exit comes after his ouster from Starz’ “American Gods,” which he and co-showrunner Michael Green were fired from following budget disputes with producer Fremantle. Fuller also exited CBS All Access’ new series Star Trek: Discovery,” while it was still in pre-production.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news of Fuller’s exit.

‘American Gods’ Picks New Showrunner for Season 2

“Lost” producer Jesse Alexander has been named the new showrunner of Starz series “American Gods.” He’ll helm Season 2 alongside the “Gods” graphic novel author, Neil Gaiman.

Alexander also counts “Alias,” “Heroes” and “Hannibal” among his credits. He recently did some work on CBS All Access series “Star Trek: Discovery.”

Bryan Fuller and Michael Green left the show they adapted from Gaiman’s work after one season. The search for a replacement has been on since then. It’s all taken quite a while.

“Neil Gaiman will be taking more of a central role and moving forward into a more traditional showrunner function,” Starz chief Chris Albrecht said last month at the Television Critics Association press tour. “And we’re looking for a partner for him who can ensure that the television part of this gets appropriate attention.”

Oh, hey Chris? What happened to Fuller and Green anyway? “They were not fired nor did they quit,” Albrecht answered, when pushed.

Alright. As for the show’s cast, well, that is a whole ‘nother story.

“Gillian Anderson seems to be leaving everything, but this was not a surprise,” Albrecht said in January, referring to the actress’s announcement that she is done with “X-Files.” “We knew that she was not necessarily going to be able to come back.”

“But Kristen Chenoweth — as far as we all know — is still committed to the show, obviously pending her availability,” he continued. “As you are seeing, we’re having some trouble getting the second season underway. It’s an incredibly difficult adaptation of a fantastic novel.”

‘American Gods’ In Limbo: Network Boss Says Starz Still Wants Bryan Fuller and Michael Green To Return

TCA: Starz’s Chris Albrecht said Neil Gaiman will be more involved in a showrunner-like capacity, but the author seemed surprised by the news.

Starz is facing at least an 18 month or 2-year gap between seasons of “American Gods,” which CEO Chris Albrecht admitted isn’t ideal. But with original book author Neil Gaiman now more involved in the show, he told reporters on Friday that he believed the show was “finally on a path to get this on track to a definite Season 2. We’re very committed to ‘American Gods,’ we love the show. It did very well for us. We’re hoping for many more ‘American Gods.'”

“American Gods” has been in a holding pattern since showrunners/executive producers Bryan Fuller and Michael Green parted ways with studio FremantleMedia North America following a dispute over the show’s budget.

According to Albrecht, Gaiman “will continue to take more of a central role and moving forward into a more traditional showrunner function. And we’re looking for a partner for him who can ensure that the television part of this gets the appropriate attention.”

In December, Gaiman said on Twitter that he didn’t have the time to serve as “God’s” new showrunner: “No, I wouldn’t take over, but I look forward to working with new showrunners as closely with as I did with Bryan and Michael.”

On Friday, Gaiman commented on Twitter that the show was not in serious trouble, also telling one of his followers not to be scared about Season 2’s future.

But after IndieWire’s Liz Shannon Miller asked on Twitter whether Gaiman’s increased involvement on “American Gods” was news to the author, he responded: Yes.

Asked for additional clarification, Gaiman replied:

Meanwhile, Albrecht said he still also hoped that Fuller and Green would have some involvement. He said FremantleMedia was still in contact with the duo and trying to work with “their schedules for a way for them to be continually involved… Bryan and Michael will be involved as much as they can be. It’s a little bit in the air as to what their exact role will be. And a lot of that is between Fremantle and Neil and Bryan and Michael. We’re not in direct negotiations with the actual executive producers and the people who run the show.”

Albrecht added that “obviously it’s not ideal to go 18 months to two years between seasons, given how competitive the world has gotten. [But] Fremantle needs to know there’s a formula where they can get this show on. It might be that the things Bryan and Michael were doing and their schedule has not allowed them to focus in the way Fremantle would like them to, given everything that’s going on.”

He also said that Fuller and Green “were not fired nor did they quit. There’s a very good relationship between Fremantle and Michael and Bryan… everyone is trying to work this out to have this be a win/win for the people involved and the show itself. Everyone wants to keep as much of the team intact for as long as possible.”

Also not returning to the show is Gillian Anderson, who played Media. Quipped Albrecht: “Gillian Anderson seems to be leaving everything but it was not a surprise.”

Asked about Fuller’s and Green’s concerns over not having enough money to produce the show, “not surprisingly if you’ve seen the show it’s not an inexpensive show. Budget is always a factor, although Fremantle has been really terrific in being willing to invest. This is about, is there a vision that can be executed on a regular basis? It is a big show, it’s a monster show, and it’s faced many of the challenges that terrific complex premium shows face in trying to get successive seasons — especially when art comes before commerce.”

Neil Gaiman to Lead ‘American Gods’ Season 2

Neil Gaiman, author of the novel on which “American Gods” is based, will take a central role leading the show in its second season. Other than that, the Starz’ series future isn’t clear.

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said at the Television Critics Association Friday that the Season 2 cast is largely up in the air at the moment.

“Gillian Anderson seems to be leaving everything, but this was not a surprise,” Albrecht said, referring to her announcement that she is done with “X-Files.” “We knew that she was not necessarily going to be able to come back.”

“But Kristen Chenoweth — as far as we all know — is still committed to the show, obviously pending her availability,” he continued. “As you are seeing, we’re having some trouble getting the second season underway. It’s an incredibly difficult adaptation of a fantastic novel.”

Which is one reason Starz turned to its author.

“Neil Gaiman will be taking more of a central role and moving forward into a more traditional showrunner function,” Albrecht said. “And we’re looking for a partner for him who can ensure that the television part of this gets appropriate attention.”

So what actually happened with the old guys, series creators and book-adapters Bryan Fuller and Michael Green?

“They were not fired nor did they quit,” Albrecht said, when pushed.

And apparently, Fuller and Green will still have some involvement going forward, Abrecht said. How much is up to them, Gaiman, and production company Fremantle.

“We’re hoping for many more American Gods to appear on Starz,” he concluded.

‘American Gods’ Bloodbath: Showrunners Bryan Fuller, Michael Green Depart in Shakeup

Season 2 was being eyed for next summer by Starz; there’s no word yet on who might replace the duo at the helm.

FremantleMedia North America has made a massive shift at the helm of its signature scripted series, “American Gods.” Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, who adapted the series from the Neil Gaiman novel, are departing the show, and it’s unclear how that might impact production on Season 2.

According to multiple insiders, Fremantle had a falling out with Fuller and Green due to a debate over budgets. One noted that Fremantle wasn’t factoring season-to-season cost increases, as well as an bump in the exchange rate with Canada, where the show is filmed. Ultimately, that would have meant a cut in the show’s episodic budget, which is already high because it doesn’t have any standing sets. Budget concerns forced an impasse between both sides, ultimately leading to the decision to part ways.

Both Fuller and Green have busy plates beyond “Gods,” which may have also led to the change. Stuck in the middle is Starz, which has been looking to “American Gods” as a signature show for the pay cable network.

Now that they’re gone, there’s no word yet on replacement showrunners. Gaiman will apparently remain as a producer in some capacity, but also has a full plate with the upcoming miniseries adaptation of his and Terry Pratchett’s novel “Good Omens” for Amazon.

“We’re on board as long as the show makes sense for Starz,” Starz CEO Chris Albrecht told reporters this summer at the Television Critics Association press tour. “The vision of Neil Gaiman is the guiding light for all of us, and Bryan Fuller and Michael Green are the guiding lights of that.”

But at that time, Albrecht wasn’t able to give a timetable on when Season 2 would premiere: “It’s a difficult show to make because there are a lot of people to wrangle.”

More than half of the Season 2 episodes are already written, and Fuller and Green have already mapped out their vision of how to completely adapt Gaiman’s world, so their take on “American Gods” will continue to be felt even if they’re no longer at the helm. (Fuller experienced a similar exit on “Star Trek: Discovery,” which he also helped create before exiting.)

Fuller’s upcoming credits include a remake of “Amazing Stories” for Apple, and he has also recently hinted at a “Hannibal” revival. Green’s busy year included the release of several features he wrote, including “Murder on the Orient Express,” “Blade Runner 2049,” “Alien: Covenant” and “Logan.” He’s also developing “Raising Dion” for Netflix and “Y: The Last Man” for FX.

“American Gods” balances humor, drama, supernatural, violence, romance, and weighty subjects like immigration, religion, and sexuality in a way that might be the most ambitious series of Fuller’s career. With Gaiman’s blessing, he and Green turned it into what IndieWire TV critic Ben Travers called a “gorgeous, violent Americana infused supernatural drama.” The cast includes Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, Betty Gilpin, Pablo Schreiber, Cloris Leachman, Jonathan Tucker, Kristen Chenoweth, Gillian Anderson, and Orlando Jones.
